Juventus squandered a two-goal lead to get booted out of the UEFA Champions League by Bayern Munich.

Having drawn the first leg 2-2 in Turin, Juve were put in a pole position to qualify for the quater-finals after Paul Pogba and Juan Cuadrado scored in the 5th and 28th minutes respectively.

Despite their overwhelming possession, it was not until the 79th when Robert Lewandowski's header gave Bayern some hope.

The Bianconneri looked set for qualification until Thomas Muller's 90th-minute goal, his 14th in 15 Champions League starts, forced the match into extra time.

And it was in the extra time that Bayern really took charge of the when Pep Guardiola brought on Thiago Alcantara and 19-year-old Juventus loanee, Kingsley Coman.

The substitutions really paid off as Alcantara and Coman scored within two minutes of each other to give Bayern a 6-4 aggregate win. Owusu-Mensah
